Pasticceria Spinella

The popular patisserie (right next to Pasticceria Savia) serves traditional Sicilian savoury snacks (arancini, deep-fried stuffed rice balls, a selection of layered, and plain-dough pastries) as well as the delightful Italian desserts, such as cannoli, cakes, and all manner of sweets.


Italian coffee doesn't need a special introduction, and the variety of local sweets and pastries is truly mind-boggling - many an establishment in Catania serve mouthwatering Italian delights, from cream-stuffed cannoli to chocolate-filled croissants, and other alluring treats, notably granita, which is a semi-frozen dessert. In the savoury department, Sicily is known for its juicy arancini (stuffed rice balls, coated with bread crumbs and then deep-fried. They are usually filled with ragù, mozzarella, and peas).
